Software Testing is the book for new or aspiring software testers interested in learning about this crucial part of the software development process. The complexity and size of today's software makes writing bug-free code extremely difficult, even for highly experienced programmers. Couple that with our increasing reliance on software for performing everyday tasks and its pervasiveness in the medical, telecommunications, manufacturing, and financial industries, and a software bug can spell disaster. Quality software can't be created with an ad- hoc, part-time, bug hunt. It requires a methodical and disciplined approach to preventing, finding, and reporting bugs. Software Testing will show you what it takes to be a successful software tester, assuring that you discover those nasty bugs before your customers do.

From the Author:

Throughout my career in the software industry, I've trained scores of people on the subject of software testing. Some were new hires right out of school. Others were career changers entering the industry for the first time. A few were experienced programmers and managers who wanted to know "what the heck their software testers did all day." Over time I discovered a core set of knowledge that is essential for these novice software testers to learn, one that gives them an understanding and a jump-start into the field, but one that isn't too deep, too technical, or too managerial to lose them in the learning process. Unfortunately, I never found a single reference that put all of this information into one place, so I decided to write it myself. The result is this book - "Software Testing."

If you're thinking about a career in software testing, if you're starting a new testing job or about to interview for one, if you're a lead or manager and need to train a rookie tester, or if you just want to understand what software testing is all about, this book was written for you.
